About the Campaign
Growing Tumor Inside His Ear
Bruce Leroy is a 10 year old kitty, with a good home. He was rescued as a stray when he was a kitten, and lives with Ray and his two other rescue cats. But recently Bruce Leroy has had a problem.
There is a tumor inside his ear that must be removed. It is growing, and also causes infection, not to mention being painful! The only way to deal with this tumor is to remove the entire ear canal. This will leave Bruce Leroy deaf in that ear, but he will be pain free. Without the surgery, at some point he will have to be put-to-sleep, because it will become intolerably painful.
The tumor has been temporarily stabilized with antibiotics. The surgery requires a specialist, because the removal of a cat’s ear canal is actually pretty complex, and as such this is about a $3000.00 procedure.
Ray’s financial situation
Bruce Leroy’s owner was an Event Manager for large concerts, and as you can imagine, there has been no work in that field for sometime due to COVID-19. In addition Ray has had his own health problems, which have cost him a lot of money. Ray has raised about $1300 from friends already using Facebook, so we are hoping to raise the approximately $1500.00 more needed to get Bruce Leroy into surgery!
All donations are only for Bruce Leroy and will only be paid to the specialist doing his surgery!
